EIC Accelerator –
an EU funding program
for SMEs, start-ups
How to benefit from EU funding programs
- First make sure you have a valid plan for your product, tool or service. If you are convinced, you can convince others.
- Don’t oversell it (the hockey stick should be realistic still).
- Prepare for mitigation and change your course when something does not work out.
- Also think about the endphase, when you have to go back to being unsupported.

Do you want to thank someone within the program?
We are extremely grateful to all the people involved in the programe. Our interview in Brussels apparently was very pleasant, so really something to look forward to. Our project officers have supported us throughout the lifetime of the project, the coaches we were given provided essential input from an outside point of view (priceless). In a way we need to thank Europe and the Europeans for helping us on our journey from start-up to a viable business in difficult times.
Thank you, Oliver, for the interview.
